The DBMAIL package replaces the normal UNIX mailing system. All email and user data is stored in a database. You can create an unlimited number of email accounts, which can be checked using the POP3 or IMAP protocol. Users can maintain their own set of email addresses. It is more scalable, more secure, and faster than traditional mail systems. DBMAIL has storage drivers for PostgreSQL and MySQL, and it has authentication drivers for PostgreSQL, MySQL, and LDAP.
Wodan is an Apache module for reverse proxying and caching of sites. It allows the backend server to determine how pages should be cached through a custom HTTP header, which makes it very flexible. It caches on the local filesystem, which makes it very easy to create custom purging systems. Expiration of cachefiles is also supported, as well as no-caching options.
Re: Am I right????
There is a C-api. It's only a bit poor that the authors change things without notifying about it in the changelog. For instance, it's no longer allowed to dbselect after a realconnect. This was allowed in a previous version.
